Using a comic-strip style presentation, the author offers biographies for 29 women in history. They come from different parts of the world, different walks of life, and made an impact in many different cultural, social, and political areas. The names of many of these women are unfamiliar to us today. However, they are powerful, revolutionary, and, as the title states, have rocked the world.
BTSYA / Teen Reader (16):
The biographies are mainly pictures in a comic style, but they get out the information about the rebels effectively. They are stunning illustrations. I received this book as a present, not knowing anything about it. Once I started to read it I could not put it down. Because I like to learn about powerful women, I really enjoyed it. The book presented these women less as idols and more as a person I could see myself in. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially young women.
Stunning illustrations grab readers and draw them into the stories of these amazing women.
This is a collection of biographies about women who "pushed the envelope" of their times.
Some of the rebels will be more widely known. Use this book as a starting place for learning more about individual women or the causes and changes they ignited.
